Two new buildings in the courtyard as well as an Attic extension on the front building were planned to house 35 Apartments. The new buildings adapt to the existing typical Berlin Block context of front and back buildings.
In order to mediate between the heights and shapes of the neighbouring buildings a roof landscape was created with a diversity of roof shapes in different angles and cut in roof-terraces.
The facades refer to the existing industrial brick facades in the neighbourhood, translated into more playful housing facades with varied sized balconies and cantilevered glass bay windows.
